    It means that the memory controller on the cpu is compatable with quad channel memory and the motherboard should say that it's compatable with quad channel to use the memory as it's designed.
    You can use quad cannel on a dual channel MB and it will function as dual channel , not quad channel.
    Do you have a need for that much ram? Are you doing video encoding or photo editing?
